1990 Mint SC in Florida

1990 Ford Thunderbird SUPER COUPE - 35TH ANNIV - 4K MILES | eBay

I guess this shop picked it up (relatively) cheap and is trying to make a serious profit on it. It will be there until they make several "adjustments" to the price.

This is for browsing purposes only. Don't need to hear about how "this car is only worth three thousand dollars, blah, blah, blah."

Nice car, they should have uploaded the photos into the listing... that's a lot of clicking!

could be just me though at work, we can't view photobucket stuff... are the pics loading? or just a bunch of links to the pics?

Low mile 35ths seem to be the only MN12s on car collector radar, I've never seen one listed for less than $8K as long as I've been into MN12s. The tenuous position they're in though, while this car may be worth well over $3,000, an equally good condition 90 SC anny with 40K miles instead of 4K isn't. And that example probably isn't being sold by a speculative business dealing with "collector cars", likely a private owner like any of us who just needs it gone. Real collectible cars don't have the majority of their worth dictated by miles on the odometer - how much discrepancy do you see between high and low mile Hemi Cuda convertible prices? It's a minor selling point, not THE selling point. - and until the cars appreciate for what they actually are and not for the pointless statistic in the speedometer, I won't hold my breath on these cars being "worth something someday".

Man, the 35th's look so much better than the 40th anniversary ones.

I can't view photobucket pics either, but I could see those. Scroll down, they are at the bottom of the listing.

That's because the 35th was an actual thought out package applied at Lorain assembly, the 40th was a cheap add on to any LX in any color.

I saw this car when it first popped up. It's even close to me. With my OCD I can't stand a black car. And living in Florida its sooo hot in the day time. Good luck with the auction

I have no way to prove it but I swear I've seen this same exact car posted on ebay several times in the past 10 years. I always wonder what ends up happening to these over priced Ebay MN12's that never seem to sell. Do they sell them somewhere else when they don't get any bids on ebay? Or does the seller give up & keep the vehicle? I guess in most cases we'll never know.

I think dealers will sometimes buy/sell/trade inventory in bulk from each other too.

This.

Every couple weeks or months, they throw the line back in the water. It takes some people longer than others to come back to reality.

Yeah I thought so too. And I'm fairly certain the asking price has been even higher in the past.
